The symbolism of flowers in porcelain

A change of environment

As Spring arrives, many people seek to renew the decoration of their homes, while giving space to elements that symbolize the season and the sensations of elegance and purity that are associated with it.

Porcelain is one of the most used materials in the production of decoration items, and one of its main characteristics is its ability to receive different types of decoration.

Flowers are one of the main decorative elements used across porcelain, by being a great way of bringing the charm of Spring indoors. In addition, these pieces can be used on several occasions, such as lunches, dinners or afternoon teatime.

What does each flower represent?

Flowers are valued, not only for their beauty, but also for all the associated symbolism. Different cultures have their own interpretations on flowers’ symbolism and that is reflected in their use across porcelain. Each type of flower can convey a different message, and it is important to know the meaning of each one of them, in order to choose the best option for each occasion.

For example, the lotus flower, which is a sacred flower in Buddhism, is often depicted on Chinese porcelain, symbolizing purity, perfection and enlightenment.

In addition, the symbology of flowers can vary depending on their colours. In porcelain, the red rose is often associated with love and passion, while the white rose symbolizes innocence and purity. The cherry blossom, which is a symbol of spring in Japan, can represent the ephemerality of life and fleeting beauty.

By exploring the symbology of flowers on porcelain, it is possible to discover a wealth of meanings and traditions that bring the pieces to life. Each flower and each colour can carry a unique meaning, while adding a depth layer to porcelain’s design. Flowers are often combined with other decorative elements, such as birds, butterflies and landscapes, thus creating a more complete setting.

A piece of history at home

Porcelain art is, therefore, a form of visual communication, rich in meaning and history, and if you want to bring the beauty and freshness of Spring into your home, choosing porcelain pieces decorated with flowers is a great option.
